Feltex is a leading South African manufacturer of automotive components used in the assembly and aftermarket of the major global automotive brands.
Global OEMs with manufacturing and assembly plants in South Africa expect local suppliers to provide them with quality products that are manufactured to global specifications and at globally benchmarked prices. We work closely with OEMs to deliver the customer experience they want to achieve and stand for. That means utilising the latest technology and keeping in sync with changing global needs and trends, and ensuring we always deliver on the customer experience.
Working in conjunction with our international partners, we tender for and secure contracts to supply high-quality components for new vehicle models. These include moulded foam seats, insulation, acoustic and thermal components, and a variety of other parts that are best suited to being manufactured locally. The manufacturing technology and production capacity to do this is provided throughout the lifetime of the model at the volumes specified by the OEM.
A strong focus on new technology throughout the business is designed to support continuous innovation and process improvement, as well as to provide reliably superior levels of customer service. On our production lines, continuous improvement activities are being introduced to link processes, provide real-time management information, and improve decision-making.
From improved internal vehicle experiences to external aesthetic and functional enhancements, we are focused on enhancing the end brand experience of our customers’ clients.
Our Maxe brand of aftermarket accessories, targeting the growing and popular SUV market and trucking sector, is well established and has a reputation for quality and reliability.
At Feltex, we aspire to be recognised as the leading sub-Saharan manufacturer of automotive components, partnering with all the major OEMs operating in sub-Saharan Africa.
